    Ok I just successfully bought 5' of black plastic pipe that seems to be PVC or something... when ground up and put in the Acetone, it didn't do ****. Just curious, we took a K-Nex toy and placed them in the acetone. Within seconds the water took color of the plastic of the toy. Then the pieces of plastic started stickin together... ok... so aside from k-nex toys, any one know how to accurately buy ABS plastic here in the states???

    Go to lowes, home depot, or a plumbing supply, tell them you want "ABS" pipe.

    I was a bit hesitant about working with bondo, and therefore hesitant about integrating the display into the dash console, but after seeing this thread, I might give it try after all. =) Great info!

    1. Obtain common sense (the hardest part)
    2. Use a common resource:
    a. Check maps.google.com
    b. Check the goddamned yellow pages
    c. Ask mommy to help
    3. WTF are you doing trying to build a car computer if you don't have the wits to find a local business?
